Jessie – me! Hi!
JR – my Anchor and husband (through a non-legal commitment ceremony). We live together. He has two kids with his ex-wife A. I’ll refer to them as SD9 (step daughter and her current age) and SS6 (step son and his current age).
KS – legal husband whom I also live with. DS9’s official stepdad, though JR is “dad” as well.
JH – current boyfriend of 1 year who lives with us.
S – JR and KS’s girlfriend. They are both dating the same woman.
M – My former brother-in-law turned best friend who rents a room from my husband and I.
All of the above live together in the same home.
ExH – my ex-husband and father of my son, hereby referred to as DS9 (dear son and his current age)
TM1 – ExH’s first wife and the mother of his three sons, my former stepsons. They will be referred to as FSS (former step son) and their current ages.
TM2/A – JR’s first wife and the mom of my current stepkids.
Other people will be referred to in the best description they can. There are lots of people involved here and I will try to make it as clear as possible who I am talking about in each post.
